Morning Racers!! It Friday, Friday!! Another lovely weekend to look forward to.
In light of my post I have some coco pops, rice crispies (hear them snap crackle and pop) and some S.M.A. Actually I still eat coco pops anyway so its quite the norm for me!!
I have a half day at work today. In my borough the library are running a series of talks and workshops, 2 of which are aimed at writers. Last week I attended a How to Get Published talk which was excellent. The lady from Random House was just lovely and very very patient. The audience were a little aggressive I felt and it just showed how the world of a writer can be a frustrating and exciting one all the same.
This afternoon will be a bit different for me as I have always put my efforts into writing for the older market – solely womens fiction. Today I am attending a Writing fiction for Children workshop. I have no idea what to expect so there’s nervous excitement working my fingertips this morning.
My desire is to write something for when my neice Lola is older and hey, perhaps even spark a new interest within my writing. I know there are many avenues my writing can take and this one is new to me. I also have a very good friend who’s illustrations inspire me no end so I would like to work on a project with her.
So, tell me racers – are you exploring any new avenues with your writing, have you ever written for children – and do you know what I can expect later?
